Being invited to a friend or family member’s wedding can be both a great joy and a source of stress. Even though you’re happy for the couple getting married, attending a wedding can be expensive and there’s a lot to think about before you even arrive.
Different kinds of weddings require different things from you as a guest, especially when it comes to your wedding look. You want an overall style that will be appropriate. It should fit in with the formality of the wedding, but not overshadow the couple tying the knot.
Below, we’ve put together a list of the best hairstyles for wedding guests. You can achieve them, affordably, and they’ll make that part of the pre-wedding prep easy. All of the hairstyles we’ve listed will make you stand out, but you won’t be pulling attention away from the bride or wedding party.

1. A Simple Down-Do
The hairstyle you choose to wear to a wedding should, first and foremost, reflect the kind of wedding it is. Look at the dress code on the invitation, the wedding website, and even the venue’s website for a clue if you’re not sure.
A simple down-down is perfect for a wedding that’s cocktail attire or semi-formal. Use a few bobby pins to pull back strands on one side, and leave the rest of your hair down. It will look elegant, without appearing too formal.
2. A Romantic Up-Do
An up-do is probably one of the most common hairstyles for wedding guests because it instantly elevates your look. You probably don’t wear an up-do hairstyle for an average workday or wedding-free weekend, so doing your hair in this way is perfect for a special event.
It can also make your outfit feel more sophisticated, which is great if you’re attending a wedding that you know will be more formal or has a black-tie dress code. And, since you know that pulling your hair up will leave your ears on view, it’s a great opportunity to accessorise with stylish jewellery.
3. A Braid
Braided styles have been popping everywhere in the last several years–from magazine covers to runways–and there’s a good reason why. They’re versatile, they’re easy to achieve but they look polished, and they can be dressed up for down.
A long, loose braid, for example, could work for a more casual, outdoor wedding. You could even incorporate flower accessories into the braid or use a colourful ribbon to tie it at the end. A more conservative French braid style, on the other hand, will add even more luxury to a formal look.
